Nomkhubulwane is the Zulu earth mother and goddess of rain, nature and fertility. She is anthropomorphically depicted as having green skin and black hair, with her left leg ending in roots instead of toes. She is a shape shifter, able to transform into any and all of earths living creatures.
Her totemic presence provides protection and assistance to those in need. With the head of a female eland, she harnesses the power of Southern Africa’s largest antelope that also holds the greatest spiritual significance to many African cultures. Her male counterpart could be the Greek Pan or Roman Faunus – the Gods of animals, fertility, spring and the mountains.
